back to 1986. first it was saxby chambliss. now south carolina republican senator lindsey graham. take a listen. >> when you're $16 trillion in debt, the only pledge we should be making to each other is to avoid the coming grief, and republicans, republicans should put revenue on the table, we're this far in debt, we don't generate enough revenue. i want to buy down debt and cut rates to create jobs. but i will violate the pledge, long story short, for the good of the country, only if democrats will do entitlement reform. >> and i think that's important what he said there. only if democrats will do entitlements, as some democrats have pushed back on that. they do not think that that should be on the table. as f americans, they believe that there should be a balance between spending cuts and tax increases. about 67%, according to a new cnn/orc poll say that 29% say only spending cuts. and who will get the blame if we don't reach some kind of agreement here? gop clearly gets the brunt of the blame here. 45% say the gop, 34% say president obama, 15% say both. now as congress returns here

prominent republican senators, lindsey graham and saxby chambliss are signaling they are willing to give a break the no tax pledge. that is a hopeful sign, folks, because a new cnn/orc poll shows more than two thirds of americans believe a trip over that cliff would create major problems, perhaps even a crisis. cnn political editor paul steinhauser is live from washington, d.c. this morning. nice to see you, paul. so the fiscal cliff triggers back-breaking tax hikes and massive spending cuts. you've got more numbers that show what type of budget plan americans actually prefer. >> exactly. one of the big arguments, zoraida, is should it be all spending cuts to get us there or tax increases, as well? brand-new numbers just out from cnn/orc. only about one in three say whatever deal should be struck should be just spending cuts. but almost seven in ten, two thirds of americans say the plan should include spending cuts and tax increases. our poll indicates americans are not so optimistic a deal will get done and if it doesn't get done, who gets the blame? look at this right here, about 45% s
they both face re-election in 2014. i'm talking about saxby chambliss and south carolina's lindsey graham. does that say to you that the political winds could be shifting a bit here? >> i think so. i mean, to have these two senators who, you know, for the last year or so, even before the 2012 election, people were talking about a possible primary challenge, and to have chambliss and graham both go out front and say listen, the pledge isn't that important to me, that is -- that could, number one, trigger a primary contest and, remember, republicans have eaten -- dick lugar lost an election -- a primary election. senator snowe retired because she was fearing one. >> let me pause on my thought. let's listen to more of grover norquist. >> no pledge taker has voted for a tax increase. they have had some people discussing impure thoughts on national television. however, even lindsey graham, if you listen to him, he would support higher taxes if it was used to pay down the debt. of course, it won't be. it would be spent. if he got, you know, 10 to 1 rarb ratios on entitlement reform. i had long
years ago. georgia senator saxby chambliss telling a local tv station, quote: gregg: here now to talk about it, juan williams, a fox news political analyst, brad blakeman, former deputy assistant to president george w. bush. brad, 258 republicans signed the pledge never to, a, vote for a drop in tax rates or, b, limit deductions. but you know what the speaker of the house said the other day, john boehner, he said he's willing to do the latter. now you just saw what chambliss said. so is the era of grover and his you ubiquitous pledge over? >> no. i think grover deserves a great deal of credit for keeping that pledge to the american people and holding republicans' feet to the fire. gregg: is it over now? >> no. we have a different set of circumstances. perhaps what the democrats should have had is their own grover norquist on spending, and we wouldn't be in the mess we find ourselves in. but here's the reality, gregg.me for the status quo. nothing's changed since two months ago. we have basically the same makeup in government. obama controls the white house, we control the house, democ
saxby chambliss of georgia. he is saying he might not honor the anti-tax pledge he once made to conservative activist grover norquist. , the head of americans for tax reform. even if it means he gets a primary challenge in 2014. chambliss saying he cares more about the country than about a 20-year-old pledge. the majority of republicans in congress have signed the pledge. so what does it mean for the upcoming battle over the fiscal cliff? let's get it into with monica crowley, julie roginsky, both are fox news contribute us. so, monica, if there is a crack in republican opposition -- i'm sorry, i actually wanted to address this to julie. i'm looking at julie and saying your name. i'm sorry. >> that's okay. >> we look a lot alike. jon: i know you do, yeah. if there's a crack in republican opposition to new taxes, that's welcome to you as a good democrat? >> well, actually, i want to commend saxby channel writes. it's about time that somebody puts the country before washington, d.c. lobbyists like grover norquist has had the republican party enthralled for the past 20 years. jo
to a deal has worst effects than not coming to a deal politically. >> saxby chambliss says we're going to have to consider raising taxes, it's for the good of the country. what do you think ultimately? where are republicans going to fall on this? is it going to lead to infighting from the gop? >> i think you'll see a lot of heat and noise but i think at the end of the day you'll see a fair number of americans break with their no tax pledge. saxby chambliss has already done so and grover responded last week by saying that we're going to have a conversation with the people of georgia which is a way of saying that we're going to run a ton of negative ads against you. senator chambliss is up for re-election in 2014 but he's made the calculation that he's less afraid of grover than he is about the whole ball of wax in general. i think this is a stand for grover norquist and if enough of these republicans break with him, it can be a big loss for him. >> eleanor, in your latest article you write about the fiscal cliff and here's the quote. there's a new day dawning on the democratic side as w

know lindsey graham well. saxby chambliss, peter king, these are thoughtful, smart, principled leaders. and they are fiscal conservatives. they are anti-tax. i don't think a pledge should define anybody. i'm not a fan of pledges. i think you pledge to your god. i think you pledge to your constituents. you pledge to your country. the kind of representative i want going to washington is somebody that's going to act out of conviction, out of conscience, out of what his constituents want and not because they are being told to through a pledge. it's taking a lot of cowage for what saxby chambliss and lindsey graham are doing. both of these guys just earned themselves a primary as a result of these statements. and i will tell the people of georgia and of south carolina, you are very well served by those two senators. i hope they win. i hope they get re-elected. they're doing a fine job. saxby, lindsey, call me, no pledges for me. i pledge to help you. >> i think they're doing what they should do, which is their job at representing the people. but l.c., let me ask you this. graham has said th
it. >> in some cases but this week you had people like saxby chambliss, joining people like your guest this morning, john mccain, tom coburn and others and 12 members of the house, saying, republicans have to be willing to compromise. we did not win, clearly, this election, and the president is back in office, you have to make some kind of deal and so the president's side, he needs to deal, too. and sometimes it doesn't get attention from the press but you heard nancy pelosi and harry reid saying they expect a deal along with charlie rangel before the december 31 deadline and the unions are on the air saying, don't cut our programs badly and the republican side, both sides are under pressure for a deal, right now and they will make it. >> chris: well, that is an optimistic view. bill, let me ask you, you can respond to sister cheney about this. one idea floated this week is for top earners to pay, instead of raising our top marginal rate, they would pay that top rate, now, 35%. on every dollar they make. and, let's put up the graphic on the screen and try to explain it, now pay t
we can close a lot of loopholes. >> i agree with saxby chambliss. a pledge you sign 20 years ago, 18 years ago is for that congress. if i were in 1941, i would have signed a support of declaration of war against japan. i'm not going to attack japan today. the world has changed. >> grover's defections likely bring some hope to john boehner, the man in charge of actually negotiating this deal with the president. after the election, the speaker did say increased revenues were acceptable if coupled with entitlement reform. but will it be supported in the house? that's where grover is seen as more of a legend than a lobbyist. some are signaling the tax debate does not start and end with this old pledge. eric cantor, who was adamant last time about opposing any revenue increase hit that note on msnbc just this morning. >> there's a lot that has been said about this pledge, and i will tell you when i go to the constituents that have re-elected me, it is not about that pledge, it really is about trying to solve problems. john boehner went to the white house ten days ago and said republicans
? lindsey graham, saxby chambliss, bob corker and peter king, and mike lee, they've all said they're willing to compromise and consider revenue increases to avoid the fiscal cliff. their shift in position has grover norquist vowing to help unseat any republican who breaks his taxpayer protection pledge. the question tonight is whether this is a larger trend or whether republicans are just testing the waters and two men who know about testing the waters, politicking and actually meaning what you say join me now. david frum and james carville, you have been on every side of this. let me start with you though david. republicans talking about raising revenue by closing loopholes. as opposes to raising tax rates. you can get a heck of a lot of revenue that way. is this smart for them r or not? >> republicans are going to be yielding ground, but they have to avoid seemingly yielding ground underressure. president has a strong hand. they have to keep their party together. frankly, i think loopholes are the wrong place to -- so-called loop homes, meaning deductions for home mortgage, are the wrong p
member, our vice chairman, saxby chambliss. we will go over the plan, we will both meet with mr. morell, and we will proceed. >> mike morell is the acting director of the cia now. do you have indications from general petraeus, even though he has resigned, he will come forward and testify about the benghazi affair before your committee? >> well, i believe he will. i think he's a responsible person, and i believe he will come. and so we are going to try to set that up today because his view as someone who was actually there, this is according to mr. woodward who was actually in benghazi, who actually spoke to people who went through the incident, i think that's important for us to hear. >> he was there. so let's talk a little bit about i guess the only way to describe these scandals that are going on, there's a scandal involving general petraeus, now general allen, leader of the u.s. military in afghanistan, the nato commander there, he's involved apparently as well. what can you tell us about first of all general allen's role in what's going on right now? >> well, this is all news to me,
the former c.i.a. director's closed-door testimony. according to republican senator saxby chambliss, petraeus never had any doubt about what to call the attack on the american consulate in benghazi. >> there was no question in the mind of anybody that this was an ect of terrorism from the get- go. eporeporter: by the morning after, the c.i.a. knew some of kee attackers who killed four americans were members of extremist groups. yet president obama refrained from calling it a terrorist attack when he spoke with steve kroft on "60 minutes" that afternoon. >> do you believe this was a terrorist attack? >> well, it's too early to know exactly how this came about, what group was involved, but obviously it was an attack on viericans. >> reporter: from intercepts of dell phone calls and text messages during the attack, the c.i.a. knew some of the attackers belonged to al qaeda in maghreb, a north african affiliate of al qaeda. but petraeus testified any mention of al qaeda was edited out of unclassified talking points prepared for u.n. ambassador susan rice when she appeared on face the nation five
by a number of republicans over the years, could be losing even more support. georgia senator saxby chambliss tells a georgia tv station he's considering breaking the promise in order to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. >>> and they are not the only ones trying to avoid the cliff. many major league baseball free agents are trying to get their money up front in 2012 to avoid tax increases. >>> well, the idea of selling designer merchandise on president obama's campaign website was mocked by some but the campaign is having the last laugh. bloomberg businessweek reports the idea by vogue editor anna wi wintor brought in more than $40 million. >>> meantime, the obama campaign is still fuming over some of the polls that got it wrong leading up to election day. the editor in chief for gallop whiched so mitt romney with a bigger lead admits gallup might have overestimated the get-out-the-oat efforts. >>> it's time for a geography quiz. put on your thinking caps. what is the name of this country? all right. if you said mexico, then you were wrong. our neighbors to the south actually go by the offici
. and now georgia senator saxby chambliss says a no tax pledge signed by most republicans is standing in the way of getting that deal done. >> times have changed significantly. and i care more about this country than i do about a 20-year-old pledge. i think we owe the debt and we've got to figure out a way to pay it. >> that pledge was written by grover norquist and his group americans for tax reform. norquist talked about this on cnn's "the situation room." >> the commitment he made to the people of georgia was not to me. it was a written commitment to the people of georgia that he would go to washington to reduce government spending and reform government, not raise taxes. if he wants to change his mind and become a tax increaser, so we don't have to reform government, he needs to have that conversation with the people of georgia. >> we've got 38 days before we go over that cliff. if there's no deal before the end of the year, taxes will go up for every american. >>> amid fears the cease-fire between israel and hamas and gaza won't last long, we found one place that is a zone of peac
saxby chambliss was among those on the sunday talk shows who said he'd be willing to reconsider raising taxes if democrats will cut spending. >> i will violate the pledge, long story short, for the good of the country only if the democrats agree to reform. >> the pledge signed 18 years ago is for that congress. the world has changed and the economic situation is different. >> now, congressional staffers met over the holiday weekend. and leaders intend to meet with the president this week. there are predictions it could be wrapped up before christmas. >> i like that optimism. >>> well, president obama is expected to announce this week a major reshuffling of his cabinet. u.n. ambassador susan rice will likely be the president's nominee to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. on top of that, massachusetts senator john kerry is said to be the leading candidate to replace leon panetta at secretary of defense. >>> and we're also expected to learn this week whether the supreme court will take up a gay marriage case. at issue in the case is the defense of marriage act which states tha
-time power broker in the gop. but the vote faced its first test last week when senator saxby chambliss said he was ready to break the promise. congressman king -- now senator lindsey graham has become the latest republican to say he would violate the pledge if democrats also showed willingness to rein in the nation's debt. >> i want to buy down debt and cut rates to create jobs. i will violate the pledge, long story short, for the good of the country. only if democrats will do entitlement reform. >>> >> let's bring in cnn political editor paul steinhauser. three republican lawmakers. it's not exactly a rebellion, right? >> not a rebellion yet. grover norquist, carol, was on cnn on "starting point" just an hour ago. he said you know what? if any of these lawmakers do make the pledge they have explaining to do to their voters. take a listen. >> if you want to go to your voters and say i promised you this and i'm breaking my promise, you can have that conversation with them. but you don't have that argument with me. you've made a commitment to your voters. >> norquist also said that nobody who
